Bite Down On This Super Bowl Food Matchup! Philadelphia Cheesesteaks Vs. New England Clam Chowder! Super Bowl Food Fight! A Twinkie Stadium As Well!

New England Vs. Philadelphia! Time For A Tasty Super Bowl Matchup!

To some it’s a football game, for me it’s a super food mashup!

Congratulations to the Patriots and the Eagles for making it to Super Bowl LII – and as usual, the big game means big big meals like this!

This Stadium Is A Foodie’s Touchdown!

Yes, this “burger stadium” is just what I plan to make for this year’s big game – and since both teams come from great food cities, I will also make these two dishes as well – here is the food matchup between New England and Philadelphia!

New England’s Legendary Clam Chowder!

New England has lobster of course, but the most comforting food of all is this one!

I LOVE this style of clam chowder: New England style is white-bass, full of big plump clams, chunks of potato, celery, lots of cream and of course, BACON!

There are so many ways to make this standout chowder, but I enjoy it thick and rich and full of clams and bacon…what could top this?

Well, anyone from Philadelphia will offer this “Super Sandwich” for the Eagles:

Behold The Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich!

Well, this is a “Super Bowl worthy” sandwich for sure! Philadelphia is known as the home of the “cheesesteak” and they are VERY particular about it!

I found this description for the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich on a website:

“According to Philadelphians, you simply cannot make an authentic Philadelphia Cheese Steak sandwich without an authentic Philadelphia roll. The rolls must be long and thin, not fluffy or soft, but also not too hard. They also say that if you are more than one hour from South Philly, you cannot make an authentic sandwich. With cheese, it is a cheese steak or “cheesesteak.” Cheeze Whiz is the topping of choice for serious steak connoisseurs.”

You can also grill onion and bell peppers as well – and while I won’t be close enough to Philly to use the right bread, I can make sure that Cheez Whiz is part of my Super Sunday!

This super food matchup will keep me busy most of Suepr Sunday, but I still will make time for a few food stadiums as well.

As Led Zeppelin once sang about the Super Bowl: the teams might change but:

“the snacks remain the same…”

Twinkie food fight

Now THIS is a Super Bowl stadium I would buy a ticket for! Yes, when the world’s biggest sporting event is on TV, you have no option but to do your part to live up to the hype – and that means only one thing!


THE SUPER BOWL OF SNACKS!

I plan to make a LOT of fun Super Bowl food once again this year – it’s an American tradition that goes back to the beginning of football, right?

More Meat And Cheese, Please!

If you want to wow your Super Bowl party guests, why not offer up your own food stadium, with all the meat and cheese you can handle!

What better way to celebrate the Super Bowl than to tease you with pictures of amazing food stadiums to help us swallow the following Super Bowl Food stats! First, look at this snack stadium:

And if that doesn’t make you hungry, this one could do the trick:

And of course, you can never go wrong when you unveil a snack stadium that looks like this – all of these great pics raise a question: how much food IS eaten on Super Sunday?

HERE ARE THE STATISTICS ON SUPER BOWL SNACK FOOD!

The Super Bowl is ranked as the number two food consumption event of the year, second only to Thanksgiving! (Source: American Institute of Food Distribution)

Get Ready To Consume 1,200 Calories!

Yes, thanks to Holytaco.com for the terrific Twinkie stadium, which should remind us all that the average number of calories consumed during the Super Bowl is 1,200! It’s the second largest day for U.S. food consumption, behind only Thanksgiving!

71.4 million pounds!

Yes, that’s the estimated total pounds of Hass avocados that will be consumed for the game this year, according to the Hass Avocado Board. That’s enough to cover the Super Bowl Stadium end zone to end zone in more than 27.5 feet of avocados – that’s a lot of guac!

I love the way the guacamole looks like the playing field here!

90 Millions Pounds Of Wings, Please!

Hope you have enough ranch dressing and paper towels to handle this one:

1.25 Billion Wings!

Yep, that’s the number of Chicken Wings that football fans are expected to eat on Super Bowl Sunday, according to the U.S. National Chicken Council, and why would they lie to us?

potato chip consumption


Don’t Forget The Chips!

Ys, potato chips are an American tradition, and we make sure to stuff our gullets during the game!

An astounding 14,500 tons of chips and 4,000 tons of popcorn are eaten on Super Bowl Sunday.

The Calorie Control Council says we’ll eat:

— 11.2 million pounds of potato chips.
— 8.2 million pounds of tortilla chips.
— 4.3 million pounds of pretzels.
— 3.8 million pounds of popcorn.
— 2.5 million pounds of nuts during their Super Bowl parties.

One last statistic to share and it involves THIS:

hamburgers and hotdogs cooking on flaming grill shot with selective focus

Cheer On #32!

Yes, we all support #32: that’s the percentage of U.S. grill owners who will be firing up on Game Day!

According to Weber, the Super Bowl ranks as one of the top 10 most popular holidays to grill. And when you do grill, turn it into something amazing like this!

Yes, nothing better on Super Bowl Sunday than a grill full of burgers and sliders, including my favorite: A burger topped with Provolone, french fries, thick bacon and tartar sauce!

Of course, none of this food can go down without a little help!

Is There A Beverage?

Well, what do YOU think?

During the Super Bowl, there will be 325 million GALLONS of beer consumed. That is A LOT of beer…you might need a bit of help carrying it to your table…

Serving Up A Bacon Mug!

And when in doubt, just pour yourself a frosty brew in this mug and have a nice snack at the same time!

Let me know what you consume on the big day!

  2. Can it be superbowl again already, John? Seriously, it only seems like two months since I enjoyed those images of stadia made from food. Life is passing me by way too fast, that’s for sure.
    Best wishes, Pete.
